what made america great is an independent, vigorous press. if a jerk burns a flag, america is not threatened. political speech is the heart of the first amendment. they're expressing their religious beliefs. now is the time to make justice a reality for all of god's children. captioning provided by the first amendment center, funded by the freedom forum. welcome to speaking freely, a weekly conversation about free expression, the arts, and america. i'm ken paulson. since the founding of jefferson airplane in 1965, our guest has produced an extraordinary body of music, sometimes popular, sometimes provocative, sometimes both. we're delighted to welcome rock and roll hall of fame member paul kantner. [applause] not long ago, paul, the washington post called you "the political conscience and space cadet of the jefferson airplane." do you plead guilty as charged? oh, and more. were you really the political force behind a very political band? no, no, we're a very apolitical band, if you really analyze it. and--we have the luxury of coming from san francisco, which is very nutrit
to the fire. (man) i wish every african-american could visit africa and every african could visit america. it would be the ultimate cultural exchange program. what's up? i'm your host, idris elba, and this is afropop: the ultimate cultural exchange, a presentation of independent documentary films that explore the diverse cultures and experiences of contemporary africans. tonight's featured film is director jamie meltzer's welcome to nollywood. first there was hollywood, then bollywood, and now nollywood, the fast-paced and very frenetic world of the nigerian film industry. over the last ten years, nigerian producers and directors have created the third-largest film industry in the world. having mastered producing videos and pressing dvds in a fraction of the time and with a fraction of the money needed in hollywood, this burgeoning industry generates some $3 billion a year, whoa. you may not know the actors, the directors, or the producers of these films, and you probably won't find them playing in your local movie theater, but nigerian films have taken the african continent by storm, out
that america is heavily involved but doesn't really want anyone to know that. which seems to be a rather pointless exercise in terms of the p.r. here, isn't it? >> no someone pretending that america is not involved. the announcement of the strategy indicated that we've been providing capability that we are uniquely qualified to provide. but as the days go by, more and more sorties will be carried out by air forces of other countries, more operations will be taken over, our role will become somewhat diminished. still engaged, still involved. obviously, helping to coordinate, but i think that's the transition we're watching. >> it's a very unusual position for american military to find itself in here. no one talking to all the generals in the last few days has really been clear what the mission is to start with. we hear it's costing america a billion dollars on air strikes, which the country can really hardly afford. i mean, isn't it time for some real clarity? and dare i say it, leadership here? >> well, i have to disagree with you there. i think the mission is quite clear. and what the p
. why was that decision made? >> that was part of the america's cup -- what we call the america's cup 34 program. there will be a spectator area at the start and finish line of the race. so that is for the beginning and end of the race. it is a beautiful area out there, and i think it gives the court some opportunity for future use of that space. -- it gives the port some opportunity for future use of that space. >> that dovetails into questions i had about some complementary use with the america's cup. are there any aspects of design that would make sense to incorporate, either for america's cup or not, as the case may be? >> regarding accommodating the america's cup, the project is being accelerated to accommodate america's cup, and the shed at the end of pier 27, the remainder which we did not anticipate falling down, is being removed for the spectator function, and squaring off of that historical structure had already been compromised back in the 1960's when the the shed for 27 was added on. it is being squared off in a matter that we hope to be consistent with the secretary's standa
at toyota, all across america. >> auto companies make huge profits. >> last year, chevron made a lot of money. >> where does it go? >> every penny and more went into bringing energy to the world. >> the economy is tough right now, everywhere. >> we pumped $21 million into local economies, into small businesses, communities, equipment, materials. >> that money could make a big difference to a lot of people. >and by the bill and menda gates foundation. dedicated to the idea that all people deserve the chance to live a healthy productive life. and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> lehrer: the international campaign of air strikes extended deep into libya today. french warplanes claimed a kill in the no-fly zone. they also raided far south of tripoli to disrupt the flow of mercenaries to the government side. elsewhere, rebels reported gains in the embattled port of misrata killing 30 government sniper
time to come back to america. i was in high school and really looking forward to coming back to a place whether i heard about fourth of jewels lies anulies . i got beat up. they said you're not from america. it wasn't in africa that i learned about racism but here in united states. we were completely broke and i did something real unpopular at the time. four days after high school i joind the united states army. not only to serve my country but to get the,gi bill to continue my education. then i saw young men and women from all across america. from farms and ranches and it matedm made me realize the strength in this country is not from commonality but our great diversity. i had a younger sister named gift of god and christa was a special girl because she suffered from severe epilepsy. she never once complained. she never said across word and it could or would take her an hour or two to line um... up her clothes and do our homework and get her lunch b bag ready. i'm the five minutes bed to - bus kind of guy, you know? well krista saw the baseball movie called field of dreams. very inspi
then, that have changed the world in my opinion -- america and media. i know some will accuse me of bing jingoistic, rah-rah america. but i'm trying to remind us of our better angels. we rebuilt europe, we rebuilt our foreign enemies and turned them into our top allies. we started the yienunited nati 7 37. we spread the idea of human rights around the human world until something amazing happened. we changed expectations. yes, many civilians have died since then in times of war. but now the entire context of war has changed. everyone assumes we're supposed to protect the civilians. as i said, that was partly us. but one more thing helped tremendously, the media. now, let me give you an example in a different context. black people were crushed and abused in this country for centuries. but when we saw for our own eyes people running fire hoses and releasing vicious dogs on black crowds who were peaceably protesting, we couldn't look at ourselves in the mirror anymore, and television was that mirror and itn't co-s to continues to help of the web. so in western syria in 1982, anywher

on the state of public education in america today? >> i will go first. she is the boss. the real answer is it sucks. we are nowhere near where we need to be. there should be an outrage. there should be a national crisis. we should all be waving the flag and doing everything we can. the children in schools today will be the first generation that are less educated than their parents. that, to me, is alarming. the richest, most powerful country in the world is losing its competitive advantage. secondly, if you go out 10 or 20 years, there will be 120 million jobs that will require a high skill employees. at the rate we are going, we will only have 50 million kids to fill those jobs. that means 70 million will be filled by children from china and india. that is not a good state. thirdly, we are spending twice as much money as we were 30 years ago and the results or not any better. as a country we need to make this a top priority. it is not just for washington. it is all of us doing our part whether you have kids or not. there are too many kids who are languishing in schools that are not doi
